By giving us your Certificate of Residence you can qualify for our lower In-State (Resident) tuition rate.
- Many counties have their own Certificate of Residence Affidavit and Application. Look up your home county Chief Financial Officer / County Treasurer and complete their Certificate of Residence Affidavit and Application.
- Otherwise, use this:
- Contact your county Chief Financial Officer/Treasury Office for further instructions on how to apply for your certificate of residence Note: On March 27,2020 New York State issued Executive Order 202.11 addressing the application/issuance of Certificates of Residence for the course of study at community colleges. The language suspends the requirement that a student obtain a Certificate of Residence within 30 days of registering for a course at a community college and allows for application and issuance of Certificates of Residence to the counties to be conducted through any means other than in-person. This will provide flexibility for the community colleges, the counties, and the students for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis.
- Once you have received your Certificate of Residence mail it to the OCC Student Accounts Office.
